Country music superstar Alan Jackson was on hand Friday June 10th to present keys to Rutherford County Habitat for Humanity’s newest homeowner, Keosha Hendricks.
Jackson’s song, “You Can Always Come Home,” has served as a sort of anthem for the national Habitat for Humanity’s Home for Good project, a program focused on building affordable homes nationwide.
“This is your day. I’m so happy for you,” said the cowboy hat wearing Jackson as he pulled a set of silver keys from a velvet pouch and handed them to Hendricks. “You know, this is just a house. But when I give you these keys … you’re going to make this a home.”
Ply Gem, headquartered in Cary, N.C., is a leading manufacturer of exterior building products in North America. Now, as part of the Home for Good Project, Ply Gem is giving back by uniting with Grammy award-winning country superstar Alan Jackson and low-income families to build affordable housing in partnership with Habitat for Humanity.
The Home for Good Project is a multi-year initiative that includes a donation of over $1 million worth of exterior building products and funds for Habitat for Humanity to use to help families build more than 300 homes throughout the year. In addition, Ply Gem will be the presenting sponsor of Habitat’s Home Builders Blitz, which brings together Habitat for Humanity affiliates and professional builders to build and renovate homes across the United States.
